Cilantro Lime Chicken
Cilantro Lime Chicken – juicy, moist chicken marinated with cilantro, lime and garlic. You can pan-fry, bake or grill the chicken with this easy recipe.
It’s been raining and wet here in Southern California and I am feeling winter blues. Food is a surefire way to make me happy during wintertime and this zesty, moist, juicy and out-of-the-world cilantro lime chicken sure did. Just look at the pictures, don’t you just feel happy (and hungry!) at the very sight of the chicken?
This Mexican-inspired recipe couldn’t be any easier as simple ingredients are all you need. Aromatic cilantro, fresh lime, garlic, chili flakes are the main ingredients that bring out the explosive flavors of the chicken. The secret is to use lots of cilantro stems and some cilantro leaves.
Again, I used skin-on chicken thighs but deboned. You can use skinless and boneless chicken breast or chicken thighs if you prefer. Marinate the chicken for 15 minutes, then pan-fry it for a few minutes before baking it for 20 minutes. Dinner is ready before you know it, and everyone will be happier after feasting on this chicken.
